    Hi Guys, I recently bought a MBP and I am concerned about viruses and leopards' firewall. I thought I read an article recently saying the firewall in leopard really sucked. So I was wondering what kind of security software, if any, do you guys use to protect your macs? Also what settings do you have on for security?

    No but seriously.

    Ya I know.. we are using macs.. and they are not much of a target when it comes to hacking etc.

    But still we do have sensitive information on our computers and some of us would feel safer to know that there was an extra wall of security between us and them.

    That to say.. I've been using "mamp" to set my computer up as a local server to test/design websites.. and I was wondering myself what software to use for this extra layer of security.. I was looking into netbarrier x.. but it seems a little overdone.

    I was looking for a simple solution to block any unknown incoming traffic.
    Any knowledge would be greatly appreciated.
